Digital Alchemy

Artist and designer Laura Couto Rosado spent three months at CERN with particle physicist James Beacham exploring the elaborate symbols and machines physicists use to extract complex information about the smallest things in existence, elementary particles. How do we decode nature's messages? Why do physicists use such curious language? Together with Monica Bello, Director of Arts at CERN, the outcomes of this initiative from the most important scientific institution in Europe will be discussed.
